Join Captain Peter Corrao for light tackle and fly fishing in November and enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience for yourself.

Step aboard a 23’ Jones Brothers powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. With a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots, this vessel will take you to the fishing grounds in no time.

While fishing off the coast of Harker’s Island and Morehead City, you’ll find large False Albacore swimming within five miles of shore. These fish are large and hard-fighting, and nothing makes a catch like this more exciting than using light tackle or fly gear. Drawing on more than 50 years of experience, Capt. Peter will see to it that you land your catch using the most thrilling and effective method.

FlyLight Charters include top of the line gear, including fly rods by G. Loomis (weights 9-13) and fly reels by Abler and Nautilus. Spinning and bait casting gear include G. Loomis rods matched with Shimano and No. 8 Tackle Company reels.
